Mirror Mirror

When I picked up that awesome dresser a while back ago that David refinished for me it also came with a mirror attached to the back. We unscrewed the mirror because I wasn't sure where I wanted to put it at the time. I also knew I would attach it to the wall as opposed to the dresser.

However its been hanging out in the garage for awhile now with nothing done to her. Time to inspire as I would like to have it hung soon in our guest room. Which idea do you guys like best?


My friend Kerri linked this to me because she knows I am a sucker for anything herringbone. I really like this but the mirror I have is not completely flat so I think this would be a harder look to do.

Of course I love the idea of an ombre mirror. However I would do it in a more neutral color so I can easily swap it in and out of rooms.

My first thought was to spray it gold - but David quickly nixed that idea!He actually wants to crackle paint the mirror which I am not totally opposed to. Problem is I am not sure what color to paint it. Since we went with a dark gray paint on the dresser.

What are your thoughts? Paint her for an easy makeover or attempt to fabric?

And on a random side note - does anyone follow blogs that give great photography tips/tricks? I love learning about my camera and would love to follow a blogger who provides lessons and tutorials. If you do leave their name in the comments! Thank you!

  1. I love that herringbone mirror!! That fabric technique looks tricky but I'm sure you could pull it off! I'm a sucker for ombre too, a grey ombre would be so pretty. On the camera thing.. I don't have a big girl camera yet but KevinandAmanda.com has some good tutorials that I've pinned for later! What kind of camera do you have? I can't decide!

  2. Love the herringbone but a gray ombre might be super pretty. Basically, if it's gray, I'll love it!

  5. I think gray ombre would look nice...but I love your initial idea for gold! Boo David for nixing it! Maybe silver instead?

  6. I love the herringbone one! However, I am not super talented in the DIY department so I think an ombre in a neutral color would look great and be easy to recreate!

  8. The herringbone is so cute! I feel like the fabric would be difficult but that you could do it no problem! This may be plain, but I also love the idea of painting it white to contrast the dark grey dresser. Whatever you choose will look fab!

  9. The ombre one is all you girl! If the mirror you have isn't flat, then herringbone would be really hard to do, like you said.
    Do the ombre!

  11. I would paint it...but that's me, I don't think I could do fabric. Love Lark and Linen for photography tips.
